In this investigation karyotypes of Puntius sophore from the Brahmaputra River (Assam, India) are presented. Chromosome preparations were made using anterior parts of the kidney cells. The karyotype of the population under study consisted of 48 diploid chromosomes with fundamental arm number 54. The chromosomal divergences in P. sophore with different ecology and geographical distribution are discussed.
